    Camping Options Between Klondike Area in Moab and 18 Road in Fruita?

    Hoping to ride the Klondike trails North of Moab (EKG, Dino Flow, etc) late Saturday night (when hopefully it is only 95F), and then camp somewhere local to the trailhead and then bike in Fruita early Sunday morning (before it gets to be 100F). Can anyone recommend a free place it would be good to use for a quick night's sleep? Closer to Fruita the better. Is Rabbit Valley still free, as I used to camp there 10+ years ago?

    Thanks - BS

    There are some primitive BLM sites just south of Klondike on Willow Springs Road, which is the southern entrance to Sovereign. Not sure if the northern entrance (Dalton Wells Road) has any.

    I think there is also primitive camping along Mill Canyon road (also south of KB, but on the other side of the highway) ... you'll be in the mix with the motos and their slower cousins the ATVrs ... but its an option.

    Rabbit Valley is still free. There are also some nice sites on the north side of I70 at the Rabbit Valley exit, on top of the bluff.

    Most of the "ranch" exits between Moab and Fruita will provide free camping options.

    There are some free, open, primitive camping spots (near the Dino Tracksite) at the northernmost trailhead for the North Klondike system. Just drive in a few miles off the highway and towards the trails. Likely to be quiet as the midsummer (slight) decline has hit its stride, this being July. Puts you a little over 20 miles closer to Fruita in the AM.
